Erosion leads to loss of life of components in machinery and pipeline which handle slurry. In order to maximize life, proper selection of materials used is required. Slurry Jet Erosion Tester facilitates identification of best material under given operating conditions. Rate of wear determined experimentally can be used to predict service life and life cycle cost.
A water jet with erodent impinges upon sample under test. Test variables are:
- Angle of impingement
- Erodent type and size
- Slurry concentration
Loss of weight of the sample after test is determined. It is converted to volume loss for comparative ranking of various materials.
